Code F-10 indicates a temperature runaway. There are two possible problems. 1) The oven temp sensor has failed. This can be checked using a standard multimeter. The sensor is located behind the rear access panel of your oven. The sensor should read about 1100 ohms at room temperature. 2) The oven control board needs to be replaced. There are no FRU's (field replaceable units) on the control board. Check the sensor first. Even a new control board is cheaper than a new oven.

You have a shorted relay in the control board.

F10 code flashing on my frigidare oven


A faulty RTD sensor probe is one of the causes for an F10 code or overheating oven. The sensor probe is supposed to detect the exact temperature in the Frigidaire electricrange cavity and relay it to the oven's main control so it knows when to shut off the heating elements.
Hope this helps

How do get rid of F10 which is on the window of my Kenmore stove


The F10 error means that the high temperature sensor is reporting a runaway temperature and shut down to avoid a potential fire. Try unplugging the stove or tripping the circuit breaker to reset the code.

If the error recurs, unplug the stove (or turn off the circuit breaker) again. Look at the broiler and bake elements with a flashlight. If it has any damage (breaks, char, melting), you will need to replace the element. Check where the elements connect to the oven and replace them if there is any charring on the back wall.

If the elements are undamaged, you need to check the wiring to identify if the problem is at the elements, the high temperature sensor, wiring or the control board. You will need to access the wiring from the back of the stove. Disconnect the wires to the heating elements. Then disconnect the wiring connections at the high temperature sensor and the control board. Without a model number, I can't be completely sure of the resistance that should be seen at various points. Please post a comment with the model number of the stove and I'll try to confirm the expected and faulty resistance values. Most likely, the resistance should be under 50 ohms but above zero between the left and right contacts of the elements and the violet wires in the wiring harness at the control board. The high temperature sensor should probably have a resistance between 1,000 and 1,200 ohms. If the resistance is high, you'll need to replace the appropriate parts. (Note: if the wiring at the control board gives a reading similar to the resistance of the high temperature sensor, the control board is the likely suspect.)

I hope this helps. If your stove is under warranty, contact Sears/Kenmore to fix the issue. If you aren't comfortable testing the wiring, contact Kenmore for a service call.

Why does the f10 code keep appearing on self cleaning fridgidaire oven? When using oven it starts heating out of control. Tends to happen when oven is being used for longer periods of time.


The thermostat is defective. It is a temperature sensor operated switch. It turns the heating element on and off to regulate the proper temperature in the oven at all times.

I have a Maytag Electric Range model MER5755QAW. It was obvious that the heating element was bad, you could see the area where it had blown out. I have replaced the heating element, and the oven will...


Just went thru this with my GE/Hotpoint oven....the oven temp sensor removed from oven should measure about 2K ohms and vary when put in ice water and hot water...if it does then problem is control panel circuit board.My oven's board was listed at $300+ so I bought new range ($500+).

F10 code on a Kenmore self-clean range model #970-6061


Your Kenmore oven has a built-in fault detector. When the oven detects an issue, the display screen on the control panel will flash a fault code. The F10 fault code on your Kenmore oven indicates that the thermal protector on your oven's control unit, or microcontroller (MCU), has overheated. If the MCU overheats, the computer stops all motor functions. Several items on your oven could cause the thermal protector to overheat. Therefore, you must troubleshoot the F10 code to determine why it appeared on your display panel. Instructions 1 Inspect the area around and behind the oven to ensure you did not place the oven next to a source of heat, such as a register vent or other appliance that becomes very hot. If this is the case, you must remove the oven from the heat source to prevent the issue from occurring again. 2 Inspect the oven to ensure all vents on the oven are open and unblocked. This includes heat vents that vent to the outside of the home. Remove any clogs from the oven's venting and check to see if the code reappears. 3 Inspect all of the wiring harnesses that connect to the MCU. Remove the back cover from the control panel with a screwdriver. Look for disconnected harnesses or any harnesses with black residue on them. This indicates an issue with the MCU. Remove the bolts that secure the MCU to the control panel housing and then replace the MCU with a new one. Reconnect all of the harnesses and retest.

F2 message flashing - Is heating element no good?


No. Heating element will not give a F code. F-2 usually is problem with the Oven sensor which is the probe coming into the oven toward the back inside of oven. Replace the oven sensor and you should be fine. Thanks, Rick
